Sonny Silooy played in more than 250 matches as a defender for the Dutch powerhouse AFC Ajax. Logged 25 appearances for the Netherlands national team. Went the full 120 minutes in the 1996 UEFA Champions League final. But what the 49-year-old can't wait to discuss is a post-playing days photograph, attached to a whiteboard in the corner of his office.
Marni Kotak gave the performance of her life when she gave birth to baby Ajax in a New York City art gallery turned home birthing center last week. Now they're back.
"I had met them all ahead of time and got to know them a little through our conversations in the gallery," she said. "They were sincerely interested in the project and really supportive of the process."
It wasn't weird to give birth in front of the respectful and quiet gallery visitors, she said.
